The Black Forest

I clumsily slip and hit my head on the black decaying wood.  I painfully get up and continue my jog down the crimson leaf path.  I land swiftly on the leaves they crack like bones and tear away before my eyes, I run around a twisty bend and the forest seems alive, the trunks and twigs groaning in the viscous wind, my jog turns into a fast paced run to race back home.

Minecraft Colonies and other colony creations

Our inquiry over the last two terms has involved learning about colonisation.  To show our learning about survival in early colonies we designed our own colonies; shelter, food supply, water supply, safety and good health were all considerations we needed to take in planning and creating our colonies.
